Poem -

IN THIS NIGHT

I am dissolved
Upon the floor
Liquid pool of me
Nothing more
Anymore
Forevermore

I am spilledΒ 
In this night
No sight or sound or fight
Melting away
Gently away
Ever away

Spreading softly outwards
No core to me
No substance
Leaking away
Far away
The only way

Existing only in creeping red
And moon shadows
IΒ am not
I was never
I am no more
Forever more

Obliterated
Terminated
Ceased
For death
Is birthed in meΒ 
This night.

Marion Price (2019)
